Deeper Life church’s founder, Rev. William Kumuyi has come out to react to claim of lowering his church’s standard of holiness following the people he invited for a program, Recall that a former Deeper Life Pastor, Gideon Akande had called out Kumuyi for inviting ‘Philistines’ to a program in the church.
Reacting, Kumuyi simply revealed that he only invited people who are experts in their fields and who can connect to young people who the program is meant for.
He added that those accusing his church of lowering standard of holiness do not know the caliber of people who were invited, but are only judging them based on their own understanding and appearance.
Deeper Christian Life Ministry is a Pentecostal Christian denomination with its international headquarters, Deeper Life Bible Church Lagos, in Lagos. It is overseen by the General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi.
In 1973, while serving as a mathematics lecturer at the University of Lagos, W.F. Kumuyi started a Bible study group with 15 university students who had come to him requesting training in the Scriptures.
The church started as the Deeper Christian Life Ministry. W.F. Kumuyi was a former Anglican who joined the Apostolic Faith Church after being baptised.
In 1975, he was expelled from the church for preaching without credentials. He continued his independent ministry, which in 1982 became the Deeper Life Bible Church. By the early 1980s that small group had grown to several thousand, at which time Deeper Life Bible Church was formally established.
